Castle Square in Warsaw is where the Royal Castle is located. The Royal Castle was the the official residence of the Polish monarchs.
One of Warsaw’s famous landmarks, Sigismund’s Column, is also located at Castle Square. It was built in 1644 to commemorate King Sigismund III Vasa, who in 1596, had moved Poland’s capital from Krakow to Warsaw.
Jacek of Tuchola, Poland sent this lovely postcard that shows how stunning Castle Square is especially at night. Thanks, Jacek !
This temple is the home of Koh Samui’s most famous landmark the Big Buddha. Most visitors come to marvel at the sheer size and beauty of this remarkable statue at some point during their holiday. Visible from several kilometers away and even from the air when arriving on or leaving the island , the 12 meter tall golden image stands proud. (source)
Thanks to sis Genebei, a member of Postcrossing Enthusiasts, for this lovely postcard. Big Buddha sure looks magnificent !
I received this vintage-looking postcard from Ana, who lives in Saratov, Russia. She said she likes to travel which could be why she chose this postcard that features a map of the world.
